Uber cool desktop or wall mountable, tilting console. This is a marine Decca Navigator Mk12 which received radio beacons that were dotted around the world to allow ships to tell their position before GPS was established. The 4 dials would turn according to where the radio signals intersected & you then worked out your position using a chart with radio signal path lines overlaid on it. The console can be tilted to any angle by loosening the huge knob on its right hand side. There are screw holes in the base so it can easily be mounted on a vertical or sloping surface. The bightness of the console & the yellow lamps can be adjusted using the knobs. Since this was designed to have sea water regularly washing over it, the front is protected with a sealed glass lid. This can be removed if camera & crew reflections are a problem but the console must be handled very carefully in this unprotected state as the lamp covers can be knocked off & lost very easily.
